We often talk about pasture-raised chickens and eggs here at The Kitchn, so I thought I would share this wonderful short film that helps to explain what the term 'pastured' really means and why it is important. This film is from Douglas Gayeton, a writer, photographer, filmmaker and advocate for sustainable living. Over the last several years, he has been working with his wife Laura Howard-Gayeton on The Lexicon of Sustainability to educate people about where their food comes from and how we can support the farmers who are engaging in sustainable practices.
For more information, and links to more of the Gayton's films on PBS, visit the Lexicon of Sustainability website.
